The ‘Queen’ star Kangana Ranaut would be home quarantined: BMC

Share This

kangna 07MUMBAI: After Kangana Ranaut’s statement on coming back to Mumbai on September 9, the sources are now saying that BMC officials will be asking the Queen actor to quarantine after her travel. The ‘Queen’ star, who is in Shimla since last few months, announced that she is coming back to Mumbai on September 9.
As per the Standard Operating Procedure (SoP), home quarantine for 14 days is mandatory but if she shows her return ticket of within 7 days, she won’t have to quarantine herself. The SoP further mentions that there will be no exemption for Kangana as she doesn’t come under essential services.
Amid war of words with the Shiv Sena, Kangana Ranaut had earlier taken to Twitter to share videos of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials at her office premises, adding they may demolish the property.
Kangana’s recent remark comparing Mumbai to Pakistan- occupied Kashmir (PoK) has drawn ire of the ruling Shiv Sena whose leaders are targeting the BJP for defending her.

In a tweet on Monday, she said officials of the Sena- ruled civic body visited her office and may demolish the property on Tuesday. Stating that she has done nothing illegal on her property, the actor said BMC should show the illegal construction with a notice.
Ranaut had sparked off a controversy on September 3 by comparing Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir after Sena MP Sanjay Raut asked her not to return to India’s financial capital. A day later, Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik reminded Ranaut that she became successful in Mumbai.

Maintaining that an insult on Mumbai would not be tolerated, he hinted that Shiv Sena’s women’s wing might physically harm her if she tried coming back to the city.
Moreover, he urged Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh to slap sedition charges against Ranaut and arrest her. In a shocking development, Raut refused to backtrack from his stance and used a cuss word against the Manikarnika actor.
Stressing that the Sena MP does not represent the spirit of Maharashtra, Ranaut expressed shock at the use of such foul language. In her tweet, she reiterated that she would return to Mumbai on September 9. Owing to the Y-grade security granted by the Centre, 11 CRPF personnel will be present in her security detail.
Taking to Twitter, Ranaut said BMC officials visited her ‘Manikarnika’ office in Mumbai and may demolish the property on Tuesday. Stating that she has done nothing illegal on her property, she said BMC should show the illegal construction with a notice.
Ranaut has been locked in a bitter war of words with Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut ever since she stated that she doesn’t trust the Mumbai Police after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Her remark was strongly contested by Raut who said it was ‘an insult to the Mumbai Police’ and asked her not to come to Mumbai.
Hitting back at Raut, Ranaut tweeted, “Why is Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir?” Her tweet evoked strong reaction from leaders of the Shiv Sena and ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik reminded the actress she owes her success to Mumbai.

Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray took an apparent jibe at Ranaut saying ‘some people don’t have gratitude for the city where they earn their livelihood’.
Speaking in the legislative assembly on the condolence motion, Thackeray, without taking any names, said, “Some people have gratitude towards the city where they live and earn their livelihood, but some don’t.”
